I do not know what hit me today but I realized I am beyond SICK of the color yellow. Could the builders have not picked a beige or tan color?! Yellow? Really? I don't know if you know this about us but my husband and I detest painting. Perhaps it is because we are terrible at picking colors...
Our living room in our first house was NEON GREEN for quite a few months.
Or perhaps it is because we are two of the most impatient people alive. Taping, cautiously painting the trim, waiting for it to dry - yeah totally not our cup of tea.
But for whatever insane reason I decided around 2pm today that I am going to paint our guest bedroom this weekend. Notice I said "I". Hubs did not have a weird epiphany and decide to face his fear of painting.
So after work we headed over to Lowe's and I picked out a sample for the guest room, and a sample for Madi's room. Sure, why not paint her room again too? Well, the sample I picked for her room was way too close to that neon green in the picture above. That's a no go. I think I may just give her room another coat of the purple once we hang a light in there, so I can actually see this time.
But GASP. The color I picked out for the guest room is GORGEOUS. So gorgeous in fact that hubs and I decided it must go in our bedroom. I've been dreaming of this color for many, many years. We attempted to paint our neon green living room this color but failed. Instead it ended up looking like a baby boys room.
This is THE color though - a grayish blue. I love. It will look incredible against our gray bedspread and black & white picture. I cannot wait!!!
So, now I have the dilemma of what color to paint the guest room. The good thing is that the room is completely empty so I have a clean palette, or is it slate? Whatever, you get it. :) So I'm loving this color...
But I'm concerned that it's too similar to Madi's lavender room. Thoughts? Color suggestions? I told you. I'm bad at this. I got lucky with the Ebbs Tide, or maybe good color choosing skills come with my new desire for home decorating. That'd be convenient.
So yes, this weekend I plan to paint our master bedroom & the guest room. I will not go all crazy and plan on re-painting M's room too. I think that will wait. I'll just paint over the green samples I put on her wall. Oh and we are also putting up a light in her room and the guest room, you know, since we've been putting that off for a year 1/2 now. That should probably be done before we paint this time...
I do not know what's going on with me but I like it! Watch out house - you're finally getting some attention! Well, the upstairs is anyway. I'm not crazy enough to tackle the downstairs...yet.
Got any color suggestions? I really do want them!
